Watch: Mexican Construction Worker Sends Perfect Message to Donald Trump Atop One of Trump's Buildings

Mexican-Canadian construction worker Diego Reyna recently hung a Mexican flag from the still-in-development Trump Tower, protesting the GOP contestant Donald Trump's anti-Mexican comments, according to CBC News.


"I put a Mexican flag on the roof of the Trump Tower in Vancouver, just to show that he is benefiting from us and that we are working hard on his projects and that we are not all criminals," said Reyna. Among many racist claims, Trump has also stated that Mexicans are "rapists who bring drugs into the country."

"Mr. Trump, we did our best work, your tower here in Vancouver is premium quality, and we were a crucial part of it, not just Mexicans but immigrants as a whole, like your ancestors were, you are not native American. The insults you have said about us, have not changed our work ethics, while working on your tower," Reyna stated on his Facebook page.

Holborn Group, the owner of Vancouver Trump building, said it would not comment on matters related to U.S. politics or Reyna's stunt while the tower, and others bearing Trump's name, have become controversial.
